Hi lovelies! I've written a little blog about Book 9 and what's been happening... Enjoy! xx
MirandaDickinsonAuthor - 12 days ago
Hi lovelies, how are you all doing? Sorry for the silence lately - we finally moved into our new home last week and have had a dodgy boiler, leaking shower and lots of boxes to deal with 😕. All this and trying to write #Book9 for the end of the month - with no internet yet, eek!
I'll have another #getinvolved competition for you on Friday, so keep watching for that. And I'll announce the winners of the first one for an item in Seren's shop.
Also, I've just had the title confirmed - and I'm over the moon with it. Just waiting for the official thumbs-up from my publisher and then I'll share it. It's going to give you an ear-worm for ages! ☺
Until then, here's a sneaky peek at what I was writing for the book this morning... xx

Also found while packing: my original notes (and original working title) for I'll Take New York. Aww, I really miss Kowalski's and Hudson River Books. Maybe I should look in on them again sometime and see how everyone is... 😍💖🗽
